American Museum in Britain
Somerset, BA2 7BD
Founded in 1961, the American Museum in Britain specialises in American decorative arts and folk art.
Claverton Manor, designed by Sir Jeffry Wyatville in 1820, contains a series of period rooms documenting American domestic history from the colonial period through to the late 19th century.
The museum hosts an annual exhibition as well as lectures, workshops, and historical re-enactments throughout the year. Its new Folk Art Gallery, Stables, and Coach House were opened in 2011 during its 50th-anniversary year.
